Synopsis

Simply Psychology by Michael W. Eysenck

This textbook provides a comprehensive account of psychology for all those with little or no previous knowledge of the subject. It covers the main areas of psychology, including social psychology, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, personality, intelligence, and biological psychology.; Each chapter contains definitions of key terms, together with several multiple-choice questions and answers, and semi- structured essay questions. In addition, every chapter contains a Personal Viewpoint section, which encourages the reader to compare his or her views on psychology with the relevant findings of psychologists. The last chapter is devoted to study skills, and provides numerous practical hints for readers who want to study more effectively.

Reviews

If you are a student of psychology, do read this book. You will not only be educated and informed by it, but fascinated and enthralled. ... The book will provide an excellent grounding in all the basics... I can thoroughly recommend it. - South Nottingham College This text is written in an engaging, authoritative and straightforward style, which would be valuable to all students starting a psychology course. - Chester College of Higher Education This is a text which stands out for its clarity of explanation and its focus on the essentials in each topic area. It should be popular with a range of students and teachers/lecturers, and is an excellent introductory text. - Haywards Heath College
